As the title quite obviously states; how do you fade an image to an other one, gradiant style? I'm using Photoshop CS.

I can't currently think of any way to make the question any clearer, so please, explain. :)

For clarity: it's about a static image. I've put three different images together, and I want them to fade over in each other.

(Editing time is over, heh.)

Did you get Adobe ImageReady with PS?

EDIT: Actually I'm not sure I understand you. Do you have an example?

I want those three "seperate" images to be fade in to each other. Basically a fade where currently the blank space is.

fade.jpg Is that what you're talking about? (forgive the shodiness, I did it in a few seconds.)

You could use a mask.

Looks like he used the eraser at a low opacity.

Yes, something like that is exactly what I was talking about. Can you please give a small set of instructions on how to do it? Please keep in mind I'm a total PS newbie, too.

I'd do it with layer masking.

First click on the layer you want to mask. Look around the little icons in the layers panel for erm ... layer mask ;) Click that. You'll see a white panel come up at the side of the preview picture in the layer box. Where it is black, it cannot be seen, where it is white, it is seen. So if you use a black to white gradient across the edge(s) it will do a graduated fade out. Or you could use a black brush with some transparency on the edges to get a similar effect.
